Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery | Overlook Medical Center | Summit, NJ


Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery

For morbidly obese people, the safest and most effective way to achieve substantial long-term weight loss is through a comprehensive approach that includes medical, psychological, nutritional, surgical, diet and exercise solutions. Morbid obesity is defined as more than 100 pounds overweight and/or suffering from obesity-related health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, joint disease or infertility.

Bariatric surgery is recognized by the American Heart Association and the American College of Surgeons and endorsed by the National Institutes of Health as a safe way to help people lose weight and minimize or even eliminate diabetes and hypertension, sometimes within months.

Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center is one of the only hospital-affiliated programs in the region to offer a coordinated metabolic medicine and bariatric surgery program. Our Morristown Medical Center location is accredited as a Level 1 Bariatric Surgery Center by the American College of Surgeons, recognizing the safety, efficiency and overall positive outcomes of our health care team. The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery recognizes Overlook Medical Center's history of excellent patient outcomes by designating it a Center of Excellence in Bariatric Surgery.

Our program is safe and comfortable from start to finish. We provide patients with the services they need to make their weight management programs successful, including a:

  • Comprehensive testing program; all patient testing is completed within a single 24-hour period at Overlook Medical
  • Dedicated and specially-trained bariatric surgery health care team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, technicians and facilitators
  • Patient navigator, available at Overlook Medical Center, to guide patients and families through the weight management process
  • Medically trained exercise physiologist at Morristown Medical Center who will create an exercise routine and goals specific to patients' unique lifestyles
